Affordable quality! Our VTX high grade, wide flanged, “quiet iron” rubber encased Olympic grip plates feature 3 slotted gripping areas (45LB, 35LB, 25LB and 10LB only) that actually raise them off of the ground, providing easier lifting and loading from a prone or angled position. The durable rubber coating protects the plates, floors and other equipment from damage. Raised reinforcements on both sides of each grip slot help make it a true institutional plate and the choice of trainers, world wide. A new steel, center bore insert provides a snugger fit on most 2” Olympic bars.
